AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Playing Augusta National during the Masters, is one of golf's toughest tests.

"The first couple of days here, you're sort of just learning a little bit. The course isn't quite tournament speed yet," Charles Howell III said.

Right now, the greens are receptive and the fairways are firm. But with the rain today, the course could play a lot different when we get to the opening round.

"It's going to be interesting. But I've got a feeling it's going to probably play a little bit longer and wetter this year. Just because of the forecast," Jason Day said.

It's no secret, this course is unforgiving.

This week, if you want to score low -- you're going to have to be precise.

"I don't think it'll change too much. It just all depends on the weather on Wednesday. If we get good weather on Wednesday, the course will be fine and dried out. They always figure out a way to make the course just right," Dustin Johnson said.
